“Slow going in parts, and domestic violence is a difficult subject to tackle. That said, I think Jackson did a good job with this one. Darker than her others, but I think it needed to be to get a realistic idea of where Rose really finds herself. Immediately after I finished I felt some of it was too contrived, but the more reflection space I've had on the story, the more it seems plausible. I'd recommend this one, but read Gods in Alabama first. It's not necessary as this isn't a sequel, but you'll have more information than Rose does if you do.”
